Such a great episode
8 November 2015 | by (El Salvador) – See all my reviews

Whenever I re-watch an episode of this show it breaks my heart that not so many people got to see it. I hope Netflix streams it soon.

I watched this episode when it first aired and I still remember how I felt hearing Grace telling Jessie that she should go for it, that she should be with the person she loved because at least she had one. It's powerful because Grace (who was never among my favorite characters) is talking about herself, about her pain, but she's still trying to comfort her stepsister and of course they manage to engage in rivalry, exposing each others' weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Sela Ward is outstanding (as usual). Even though she has not a lot of screen time she manages to make the most of it as a mother who advises others to accept their children for who they are but is still struggling with the possibility of having a lesbian daughter and struggling with finding out that she's not 100% OK with it, as she thought she would be.

I will always admire this show for being on ABC and still providing quality and well-rounded characters with flaws who were still figuring it all out. They even manage to mention Spencer and not just put him on a bus.
